Change is in the works at the Marker Hotel in San Francisco.

After a little more than one year as BDK, the four-star hotel's ground-floor restaurant is set to become "Tratto," run by hospitality firm Puccini Group. The firm's public relations team says the new restaurant will debut later this year.

While they've yet to disclose any specifics on the new concept, it seems safe to say Italian fare will be the main attraction.

For 20 years, the boutique hotel—then known as the Hotel Monaco—was home to the upscale brasserie Grand Cafe. After an eight-month renovation, Kimpton Hotel Group reopened the space last March as the more casual American restaurant and bar BDK—named for the initials of the company's founder, Bill Kimpton.

For now, BDK is still open daily for breakfast, dinner and drinks.
